F-ZERO is an intense racing game in which you speed along courses in the future at speeds over 400 kilometres per hour. It’s also known as a game that Nintendo released simultaneously with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
After release, F-ZERO was a huge hit because of immensely popular features such as the ability to record your best course times down to one-hundredth of a second. How did development of the game begin? This time, I will be talking to game director Kazunobu Shimizu, main programmer Yasunari Nishida and designer Takaya Imamura, who also appeared in the first interview covering Star Fox and Star Fox 2.
And now for Shimizu-san, Nishida-san and Imamura-san!
